Opa and Oma are the Dutch names for grandmother and grandfather, and this week we head back to London after two months in Perth.
In fact, Sebastian has spent half his life in Perth.
The photos here are some highlights of the time here, including a visit to the circus ('wow') with the Killows, to the dam with Opa and Oma, and the daily orange with Opa. 'Omi', the boys' great grandmother, delights in Eddie and Sebastian.

My parents recently took me out for a belated birthday dinner, where this phone-photo was taken. I was reminded of where my own restaurant inclinations come from when I saw my father's response to the guy offering to grind pepper on the food. I've never known what to do with him, and my father proposed the same compromise I generally arrive at, which is to say "just a little bit thank you".
